MORE than 100 participants are expected to join the inaugural staging of the off-road Duathlon in the Bantayan Beach Games 2012 on April 5.
The event is one of the 10 contests in the Beach Games, which will be held from April 5 to 9.
The Bantayan Beach Games will also have the tri-kids, ITT individual mix, open water swim, beach run, Oceanman, summit triathlon team championship, beach soccer, kickboxing and mixed-martial arts. The events organized by Travel Services and Great
Adventures and Concepts@Work.
“A couple of years ago, we attempted to stage an off-road duathlon but the people at that time were still not into it. We only had 10 people who signed up. With the people nowadays getting more conscious about staying fit while having fun, we are optimistic that we can attract a lot of participants with this inaugural staging,” said race event director Jerome Mil.
Mil said the race features a 3KM run and a 15K and 2K bike ride. It will have the 19-Under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49 and 50-and above age groups.
